While fans of the Georgetown Hoyas may have noticed regression in social media and marketing by the official outlets, anyone on Twitter and Instagram surely has noticed an uptick in involvement by members of the Hoya Hoop Club. With some great retweets, and good flow of GU news, they deserve a follow—and support from the great readers and commenters of Casual Hoya.

He was drafted 9th by the Knicks. pic.twitter.com/vCi6vMkq4v— Hoya Hoop Club (@HoyaHoopClub) October 25, 2021
